Did you do something special this summer – a visit to family and friends, or that trip of a lifetime to Venice?   Like many of us, you may be letting your summer photos languish in a shoebox or on your computer.  Instead, keep those wonderful memories alive by scrapbooking them!  For inspirational ideas on layout, color and theme, consider these titles in our crafts collection:  Creating Vacation Scrapbook Pages, from Memory Makers; Scrapbooking Your Vacations, by Susan Ure; and Teach Yourself Visually Scrapbooking, by Rebecca Ludens.  Going digital?  Digital Scrapbooking for Dummies takes you through all the steps of creating your scrapbook on the computer, while Digital Scrapbooking, by Maria Nerius, provides examples of actual projects.  Have fun!
